From the press room of the BLM Group Arena coach Marco Ramondino comments with these words the comeback victory of his Bertram Derthona on the Dolomiti Energia Trentino, at the end of the race: “We must be enthusiastic about this victory because this was a match with many aspects that recall a playoff match.
We played away against a team in excellent momentum both in the Cup and in the Championship, a tough, physical team in which in almost every position (beyond centimetres) “we allow kg”. It’s not just a matter of physicality: it’s Trento’s type of choices and game that allow it to impose this characteristic.
We played a very good match for more than 30 minutes; we struggled in the first half to find space and a minimum of ball movement when we played with the 2 pivots together (Cain and Radosevic). At that moment we also made several mistakes in defense, making mistakes in the transition and Trento was very good at punishing all those mistakes.
The very positive thing was that already in the first half, one possession at a time, we started to get back into the game, without looking for too hasty solutions. In the second half I think we really played a very, very good game.
Personally, I am really satisfied with the team’s performance: beyond the contents, the work of coach Molin and what Trento does, for whom we have great respect, made this a playoff basketball and winning away here is truly an important result.”
